The Huaringas is a circuit of 14 lagoons, located in the Huamaní Mountain Range at 3,950.- m. (a.s.l.), that belongs to the Province of Huancabamba (1,929 m.), in the Piura region in Northwestern Peru, and which are since ancestral times one of the most magnetic places in the country, due to the powerful energy healing and magical powers they concentrate, according to what thousands of visitors and knowledgeable people say of Andean mysticism.
However, there are two lagoons preferred by the healers and shamans, to do their healing work: The Shimbe Lagoon, in which flourishing baths are performed, and the Black lagoon or Sacred Lagoon, where all kinds of healing and magic happen.
This esoteric tour is organized from the locality of Huancabamba, with a stretch by bus and another on horseback riding or hiking, which allows you to get to know typical places, villages and hamlets, while we contemplate beautiful Andean landscapes.
